PRIVACY ACT NOTICE: The VA will not disclose information collected on this form to any source other than what has been authorized under the Privacy Act of
1974 or Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations 1.576 for routine uses (i.e., civil or criminal law enforcement, congressional communications, epidemiological or
research studies, the collection of money owed to the United States, litigation in which the United States is a party or has an interest, the administration of VA programs
and delivery of VA benefits, verification of identity and status, and personnel administration) as identified in the VA system of records, 58VA21/22/28, Compensation,
Pension, Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Records - VA, published in the Federal Register. Your obligation to respond is required to obtain
or retain benefits. Giving us your SSN account information is voluntary. Providing your SSN will help ensure that your records are properly associated with your
claim file. Refusal to provide your SSN by itself will not result in the denial of benefits. The VA will not deny an individual benefits for refusing to provide his or her
SSN unless the disclosure of the SSN is required by Federal Statute of law in effect prior to January 1, 1975, and still in effect. The requested information is considered
relevant and necessary to determine maximum benefits under the law. The responses you submit are considered confidential (38 U.S.C. 5701). Information submitted
is subject to verification through computer matching programs with other agencies.
RESPONDENT BURDEN: We need this information in order to determine continued eligibility for REPS benefits (38 U.S.C. 5101 (a)). Title 38, United States Code,
allows us to ask for this information. We estimate that you will need an average of 15 minutes to review the instructions, find the information, and complete this form.
VA cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless a valid OMB control number is displayed. You are not required to respond to a collection of
information if this number is not displayed. Valid OMB control numbers can be located on the OMB Internet Page at www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. If desired,

INSTRUCTIONS
You will receive all benefits due you for the year if your total annual earning do not exceed the limit shown in the letter
attached to this form. If you earn more than the annual limit, then $1 will be deducted from your benefits for each $2 you
earn over that limit.
Item 2A - Gross Earnings Last Year
Enter your total gross wages for January through December of last year in the block provided. You must enter all wages
earned for the entire year, even if you received REPS benefits for only part of the year.
Your total gross wages for last year are generally the same as the highest dollar amount shown on your form(s) W-2 for that
year. Total gross wages include cash pay, cash tips of $20 or more a month for one employer, certain wages-in-kind (unless
you are a domestic or farm worker), bonuses, commissions, fees, vacation pay in lieu of action, severance pay, and most sick
pay. You must include this income, even if it is not shown on your form(s) W-2. (Examples of income you do not have to
report are listed below.)
Add the total net earnings (or loss) from self-employment as shown (or will be shown) on your Federal income tax return
(Schedule SE, Form 1040). If you report your income on a fiscal year basis, explain in Item 8. Be sure to show beginning
and ending dates of fiscal year.
Item 2B - Anticipated Gross Earnings This Year
If you expect to have earnings this year from wages, self-employment, or both, enter the highest amount you estimate you
will earn in the box provided. If you do not expect to have any earnings, write "NONE" in the box. DO NOT leave the box
blank. If you cannot furnish an estimate, enter "UNKNOWN."
IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE ITEM 2B, NO BENEFIT CAN BE PAID FOR THE CURRENT YEAR UNTIL YOU FILE
A REPORT OF EARNINGS.
If you sold or transferred your business last year (or plan to do so in the current year), explain in Item 8. You may be asked
for information or documents concerning the transaction.
INCOME YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPORT
Generally, you do not have to report income that is not earned from employment or self-employment such as:
Social security, railroad retirement, civil service, veterans', black lung, or public assistance benefits
Pension and other retirement payments
Investment income, unless you are a dealer in securities
Interest from savings accounts
Life insurance annuities and dividends
Gain (or loss) from the sale of capital assets
Gifts or inheritances
Rental income, unless it is from a trade or business, or by a farm landlord materially participating in the operation
of the farm
Unemployment compensation
Jury duty payment
Sick pay received more than 6 months after you stopped working
Room and board furnished by your employer on his/her premises for his/her convenience (Living on your
employer's premises must also be required by him/her for the value of the room not to count as income.)

subject to U. S. Social Security (FICA) taxes.
